Actually not that excited, which is strange from me because I used to consider myself a huge fan.

recovery was indeed a solid comeback and a fairly respectable release, but people are being a little enthusiastic about it. we all know, no matter how much we want to deny it, that it doesn't come anywhere close to the first three albums. recovery was mainstream pop rap, through and through. it didn't have any of the bite, or really even the overall flow, that made him so awesome. honestly, i think you guys are doing all of us a disservice by being so optimistic about recovery - you're making em think that what the hardcore fans want is more of this pop rap, and we don't - we just lowered our expectations.. this next one's gonna be more of the same, guaranteed, and it's your fault.

still, this is good news.
This pretty much sums up my feelings about Recovery and the next album, well-put.

What makes you a "hardcore" fan? Not liking an artist's album? Not supporting their artistic vision?

Yeah, if there's anything eminem needed to alter it was to change his rap style to a more "pop" friendly style to gain fans and make money. He's never had any success or anything so this totally makes sense.

Bad Meets Evil was awesome. Huge progression from Recovery which was forever ago, so why dont we at least discuss his most recent release. Maybe 1-2 weak tracks out of the 12 or so that came from those recordings.

Oh, well that makes more sense than what you said. I've never met anyone in my life who thought Recovery was his best album though. I'm sure they're out there and I find that mad, but there shouldn't be anything wrong with enjoying the album.

Really, even after a couple of years there's still no love for Relapse? I think this album is better than Recovery.

Anyways, Em is a beast, can't wait for the new album!

Or even us Americans (even though I live abroad) who can never remember when holidays like Memorial Day or Labor Day are. Good thing I couldn't care less about Eminem.

Relapse was amazing. The rhymes were incredible. Listen to Stay Wide Awake.
